On November 10, we had our annual Youth Leadership Retreat at Rhode Island College. RIEEA staff and Peer Mentors from last year’s Youth Leadership Program provided training and supported connections among youth from schools and organizations across Rhode Island.
Rachel Holbert with Newport Tree Conservancy was recently awarded a RIEEA professional development scholarship. Read on to see how she used the scholarship to expand her connections and environmental education knowledge!
This month we will be discussing access considerations including access for learners with disabilities, the difference between interpretation and translation, how location affects participation, and any other access challenges on your mind!
For anyone who works with high school students (or is one!), the deadline for applications for our 2022 Youth Leadership Program has been extended to Thursday, October 13.
